Fire Warden Training

Our Fire Warden Training course complies with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. Companies are now legally required to carry out a fire risk assessment, and part of that assessment covers the training of staff. We firmly believe that hands-on training provides the best and most useful way of learning, this course includes practical experience of live fires as well as theoretical training.

The regulatory reform fire safety order states that employers must nominate competent persons and train them sufficiently for the equipment made available to them in the workplace, this is why here at Nationwide Fire we think it is important to have theory and hands on training in use of fire extinguishers.


This course is designed for designated fire wardens, or those about to take on the role in their workplace. Delegates will learn about the causes and effects of fires, how to prevent their spread, their responsibilities and duties as a Fire Warden, and how to implement emergency procedures including an efficient and orderly building evacuation. All our courses can be tailored to meet customers needs.
